7 TikToks Every YA Lover Should Watch

I never *got* the appeal of Tiktok. For months just about every friend and classmate I know downloaded the app and spent endless hours scrolling through the short-form videos on it. Yet every time I’d watch the videos I felt it was a fad I couldn’t get into. One change of heart later and I’m ready to admit the truth: the TikTok revolution is here and there’s no use fighting it.

The key to enjoying the app, it seems, is to find your niche. If you’re reading this post I’m going to take a wild guess that your niche is being an avid YA lover. In that case, I’m happy to tell you there are dozens of TikTokers posting book recs and relatable content for readers. If you’re still not convinced, here are TikToks for every type of reader that may just make you laugh.
